About the beauty backpacker
I'm Yari, a travel and beauty blogger exploring our beautiful planet and discovering the best global beauty products, traditions and rituals along the way.
I'm a self-confessed travel junkie (50+ countries and counting), bit hard by the travel bug at a young age, thanks to my adventurous parents and my mixed Latin and American upbringing. I’m a New Orleans and Florida girl by birth but a Londoner, and global wanderer, by choice.
And then, there's beauty. Nothing brings me more joy than perfecting my night-time skincare routine or applying my signature red lip.
But what I love more than anything is the diversity of beauty - from the rituals to the indie beauty brands - that can be found across the globe.
This blog is all about celebrating these; from the quirkiest spas (mud bath, anyone?) to the most unheard of beauty treatments to the local beauty brands that make a woman feel beautiful in her corner of the world.
Just think of me as your Travel Fairy Godmother, here to sprinkle a little stardust that spices up both the way you travel and your beauty routine back home.
I hope my little corner of the interwebs inspires you to take a trip (way, way) outside your comfort zone or leads you to a destination you didn’t even know existed. Or that your suitcase comes back filled with a few too many beauty goodies that completely shake up your skincare routine. But most importantly, I hope you touchdown with a greater awareness of the world’s incredibly diverse beauty and a newfound appreciation for what makes you uniquely beautiful.
Happy adventuring and please do say hello!
